Gay Map of CITY
Description of City
Houston’s gay community is located largely in the Montrose area. Here you’ll find many shopping, dining and cruising opportunities. The Galleria on the West Side, minutes from Montrose, is a great one-stop shopping destination, with 375 stores, restaurants, and entertainment.
The gay scene
Houston is a welcoming place where it’s virtually impossible to remain a stranger for long. The small-town feeling contrasts with this big city’s soaring skyline, world-class arts, and cuisine that’s as sophisticated and varied as you’ll find anywhere. The bar scene is varied too, from clubs catering to cowboys, leather guys, bears, and Latinos, to upscale lounges in the style of New York or LA, plus retro-music and alternative/arts venues.
A car is a must for getting around Houston’s sprawl. But if driving, observe the posted speed limits. Police here are vigilant. Metro has a fleet of buses and a rail network of three lines, red, green and purple, with 44 stations for getting around the city.
